And She’s Off …

July 27, 2009

Well, what the heck have I been doing with myself all this time.  I was a running warrior about a year and half ago – and as all too often happens with me, something I deem more important at that time takes that priority spot and off to the wayside it goes.

Alas…life is ever changing.  As you may have read, I had a bit of a health scare.  I have a spinal fracture/compressed vertebrae.  Long story short, I dodged the osteoporosis bullet, but I do have osteopenia of the spine.  And because of this, I’ve realized that I truly need to focus on myself.  While it’s important to pour my energy and attention into my job, my kids, my husband and his running – I have completely ignored myself for the past decade.

So, here I go.  Today, I’m going to go experience my first yoga class.  A friend/radiologist recommended yoga and Pilate’s after seeing my DEXA scan results.  Okay, before I start getting comments from random strangers on the dangers of yoga and/or Pilate’s and bone issues….back off.  I’m educated, informed, and making my own choices.  If you don’t have anything nice to say, please don’t bother to comment on this.

I’m seriously intimidated at the thought of going to yoga.  Oh holy heck, but, at the same time I’m looking forward to it.  It will be something completely new and different for me.  Same with Pilate’s, which by the way, I start tomorrow morning.

And getting back on the cardio bandwagon, I’ll start getting back into my running routine tomorrow as well and I’ll be back swimming 2x’s a week.  So, today I start a serious streak!  I’m going for a 30 day streak, and maybe Pokey will join me (although, it appears Facebook too has replaced her blogging).

This blog is taking a new turn…but, isn’t that what happens in life.  LOL.  I’ll report back later on my first yoga experience
